Episode 109: Cell’s Vagina

Merk is off in convention-land this week, so Bry and Kyle make a very foolish decision: an entire episode focused solely on Dragon Ball.  Dragon Ball News, a DBZ villain-centric Marry/Be-physically-intimate-with/Kill, a multiball of League of Baldos, and so much more.

Plus! Filling in for Merk is Bry’s lovely wiiiiiife, Sheri Leviski-Kotyk!  Your wish, is, uh-gur-anted.

Doodle Talk: What Do You Have Trouble With?

Introducing a new fill-in segment: a quick, loose, brief discussion over our own art. We’re calling it Doodle Talk!

This week’s doodle talk prompt: “what do you have trouble with?” From feet to consistency to keeping a schedule and technical difficulties, we get some stuff off of or chests and bare our souls. And our doodles.

Episode 108: Spider-Man’s Radioactive… Fluids (Funny Jokes??)

On the 31st anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster, it’s definitely in excellent taste to talk about the history of radiation in comics! R…right? From heroes and villains with radioactive powers, to Spider-Man’s radioactive blood (and, um, other things), to the debate on whether the Atomic Age “radioactive origin” trope still works in today’s world, and how nobody likes Captain Atom — this episode is glowing green with great conversation!

Also: Kyle challenges Merk and Bry to a very educational quiz on intellectual property and fair use, and we dig into the Zero Issues mail bag and reply to some very real, definitely not made-up fan letters!

Episode 107 BONUS: Bry V Merk – I Find it Refreshing

Captain America is a bad guy!! Is this a good thing? Is it bad? Should Marvel be doing it? Why would it upset some people? And should that be taken into account? The EXTENDED discussion from episode 107 as Bry & Merk go head to head on this issue! You heard only a (Matt) fraction of the fight on the original episode! Hear the battle in it’s entirety! The directors cut of… arguments? Ok. It’s an extra 8 minutes or so. It’s not BvS here. And there’s no dream sequences.

Episode 106: Aquamanbun

Are you ready to get so wet? Slip out of those stodgy old clothes, pop on a koi top and a couple of eels for pants, and let’s all relax with a nice refreshing glass of Agua, man, as we talk about the coolest son-of-a-lighthouse-keeper, A…Aquaman. We’re doing Aquaman this week. Okay? Okay.

Plus! Merk presents a very familiar who-would-win character tournament that some other folks did, and Bry gushes over a certain very new book in Read This Now. So Read It and Get Out!

Get ready for a shock: we’re doing another Lightning Round!! The boys tackle some super quick topics in 7 minutes or less apiece, including: Which superheroes should go bad! The comics we wish we could un-read! Creating new Super-Pets! And an ultra-quick round of Character Storm!

Episode 104: 4 Stanley Kubricks and One is a Cyborg

So what do you get when you mix pre-power ranger power rangers, bizarre letters to comic books from way long past, and hawkman? This! That’s what you get! A collection of hilarity. Bry warms us up with a quick exploration of the little known connection between Marvel & Power Rangers. Then we dive into comic book letter pages-did we read them? Do we still? Who writes in? What do they think about cousins marrying? What famous comic books peoples used to write in all the time? And more! Then we wrap it up with a Roast of Hawkman. His fellow super folks get together and let the Hawk have it! NSFW. Plus news and a song and Stanley Twobricks! Come on in!

Episode 103: The Other Planet of the Symbiotes

 

Aliens.

Get it, like that guy from that meme?

This week we are celebrating Extraterrestrial Abduction Day by talking about our favourite alien abduction-related characters in the ol’ funnybooks. Characters who got their powers from aliens, weird aliens and where the heck they came from, the concept of an entire planet covered in black goo…y’know, that sort of thing!

Also: Because Merk demanded it, we take a few minutes to talk about Iron Fist (the fiiiiist!), and Bry sets a reminder for himself in the future in the Moment of Zero. This episode’s out of this woooooorld!
